LAS VEGAS -- The family of a man killed while riding his bike across a busy intersection is in despair and searching for answers.
Joseph William Galterio's mother, sister and other family members visited the intersection of Charleston Boulevard and Pecos Road where Galterio was struck and killed Tuesday.
They wonder if his death could have been prevented.
"He's been suffering from Tinnitus for a long time. I don't know if that was the cause. He wasn't thinking, wasn't aware of what he was doing. I can't believe he just shot through a stop sign," said Josephine Galterio, his mother.
He was her youngest son. She said he suffered from ringing of the ears, or Tinnitus.
Galterio crossed Charleston at Pecos on his bike after visiting his girlfriend. His cousin Jeannette Arnone says he'd ride his bike all the time, but this time he didn't make it home to his mother's house.
